Run 1733 - 29th May 2010

Venue: Opposite Nirvana Cemetery, Jalan Sungei Lalang, near Semenyih
Hare: Jerry French
Co-Hare: Noko Ayr
Scribe: Bob Morgenthaler
Comic: Nick Morss


Head out of KL towards Cheras and Phoenix Plaza.
Follow 'KAJANG' signs to get onto the Cheras-Kajang Highway (E7).
Keep straight all the way along the Cheras-Kajang highway, along the slow bit, and close to the beginning of the new Kajang-Semenyih highway, turn left (exit 2101A) to Semenyih.

In Semenyih town, at the second lights (opposite the mosque and large grassy area), turn left on Jalan Sg Lalang (B19) - this is also sign-posted for "Hutan Rekreasi Sungei Tekala".

Drive for about 10km through kampongs, into the 'Semenyih Memorial Hills', and to the Nirvana cemetary.
The run-site is on the right, exactly opposite the main Nirvana entrance, and just past the milestone saying 27km to Pekan Batu.

Those with kids and non-running adults could go 2km further, to find a 'pusat rekreasi' on the right (not the earlier one on the left), which is a good place to park, relax and play in the river (assuming no downpours). The hashers will return via this area and cross the bridge here.

If anyone wants to come over the hill from Ampang (via Hulu Langat), the directions are:
- when you reach the junction at the mosque, go straight (dog-leg) towards Semenyih & Kajang, past the Beer Garden, and after about 10km go right at the T-junction at the end. Nirvana is about 10km further, just after the milestone saying 20km to Kajang, and the run-site will be on the left.

Important note for runners: On the last part of the run, flour (probably coloured) will be used.

On On: Zuan Kee, at Kajang Technology park (return to Semenyih, turn right and head for Kajang. Turn left after Billion supermarket).
